Constitution to regulate the extent of governmental cryptanalysis
There have been some lobbying to draw a line between what is deemed to be acceptable level
of government 'surveillance' in civilian use of encryption, and what is not deemed to be
acceptable. Statistically, larger countries have more problems to be solved before
achieving this goal than smaller ones.
Limiting use of crypto system in civilian domain
For existing methods of encryption, an individual or a corporation requires a
license/approval for certain types of usage, to be imposed on commercial vendors. However,
this would present a dilemma as vendors have to cater to different countries employ
different constitutional policy that regulates the use of encryption to keep information
Restriction of encryption security by regulating availability of crypto system in
An independent organisation may be established to regulate the types of encryption methods
that are allowed for use by civilian. At the same time, this body may have to guarantee
the confidentiality of the information encrypted.
In 1993, Escrowed Encryption Standard was introduced in USA. It involves deposition of
complete data for each cryptosystem used in civilian context, and protect the information
from surveillance unless disclosure (decryption) is ordered by the court.
